  • Jacqui, law firms are full of alpha females. Indeed one told me a while ago that tests conducted on female lawyers and male vicars generally found greater testosterone levels among the former and who was I to argue with her?

    You just weren't worthy, Clive. ;)

  • discount with some shops could be ok

  • oh no, the grind is simply the brake pad rubbing off the rust surface.

    Thanks.

  • One of those posters like the one in the toilet in LMNH

  • posting this on here as I know the readership.

    Rospa do a newsletter,

    theres a piece in the current one, stay with me
    Bicycle helmet initiative trust Headfirst scheme,
    launching jan 2011
    heres the rub
    "The scheme will be introduced in all primary schools across the country and will teach six to eight year old children the importance of protecting the brain and how a cycle can do this"
    (there is also a Headsmart scheme for 8-11 year olds)
    who is sponsoring this?:- GEM Motoring Assist.

    CEO of GEM says
    "We want to promote cycling, however, we know our environment can be dangerous and people need to take precautions to ensure they are as protected as possible"

    so, governement money to cycling and sustainable transport dies up, big society (in this case motoring lobby) moves in.

    this is how it works folks, while we promote cycling, these cunts with their marketing double speak come along and get there with the fear, danger and safer in the car message. GEM can get fucked IMO but if you really like, check out their free guide to safer cycling booklet at www.motoringassist.com

    Fuck a duck. Not read link yet but your summary is enough to cause concern. Will check back later.

    Have fun on the juggle balls workshop J, not done that for ages here.

    Jason, I take it you didn't remember the time Volvo tried to do the same with cycling helmet? and that was in the Netherlands!

    Very worried that the UK will probably bend over and take it as oppose to the Netherlanders.

  • Someone has prepared this questionnaire

    Can you think of any additions/changes?

    · Do you currently cycle to work?
    · If yes, what can be done to improve the facilities at ***?- More showers

    • Drying room
    • Better bike storage
    • On-site maintenance
    • Other (please specify)
      · If no, what stops you from cycling to work?
    • Fear of cycling on busy roads
    • Lack of fitness
    • British weather
    • Lack of right equipment
    • No inspiration
    • Other (please specify)
      · If no, what would encourage you to cycle to work?
    • Discount on equipment purchase
    • Escorted rides
    • Cycle training
    • Discounts in staff restaurant for cyclists
    • Other (please specify)

  • Pool bikes (nudge, nudge)?

    Seriously Clive, I'd love to talk a little more about the ideas that were in my PM, it could also turn into a nice little jolly for you with a trip out to our factory.

    yes, but lets not even go there. It is happening, from lots of organisations.
    we are best to stay positive.

    Clive, what is the aim of the questionaire?
    Is it to find out what puts off your work colleagues from cycling?

    If so i don't belive it will be that hepfull. There are quicker easier more practical means to get the ball rolling. There is now funding the City of London needs to spend to get city workers on bikes. Lets meet asap and kick start something at your work befor christmas

  • Someone has prepared this questionnaire

    Might want to edit the name of your employer out of there.

         If no, what stops you from cycling to work?
    

    ...
    · If no, what would encourage you to cycle to work?

    These look like very similar questions phrased the opposite ways round. I would go with tickyboxes for the "What stops you?" question and have a write-in for "What would encourage you?". Also the "if no" for the second part could be "what would encourage you to cycle more often?", to catch the part-timers.

  • Someone has prepared this questionnaire

    Offer reinsurance on the risk of bike theft?

    But seriously, I agree with David and wouldn't start with a questionnaire. Just kick off events and see what participation is like. If it's fun, people will come and you won't run the risk of a poor questionnaire result/take-up being held up as 'evidence' that people aren't interested.
